IS IT NOW TIME TO DISCARD ACRONIS ONCE AND FOR ALL ???
After supporting Acronis for many years purchasing there software, Disk Director True images etc. none of which is supported anymore when I login, I'm now at the stage of almost giving up with Acronis !!
Once a professional company with credible software products, Now all I see is cloud this and cloud that, bloat ware when installed.
Even my purchased version of true image 2020 could not clone my samsung ssd 870 evo boot drive to a new Crucial CT1000P5PSSD8 NVM drive ??
Did the clone from SSD to NVM drive, windows booted then black screen at login, workstation restarted, ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE 2020 what a total waste of space.
Downloaded the trial of Macrium reflect and this did the job perfectly
1) I do not want any yearly forced subscription to any software including Acronis. I will Never Never Never pay a yearly subscription. Its down to me when I want to renew my purchased software ... NOT ACRONIS !!
I ALSO DO NOT WANT ACRONIS TO FORCE CLOUD STORAGE ON ME EITHER, let's keep our backups local, much much better, much cheaper and much much safer too ... just my thoughts hmmm oh and don't have to keep paying Acronis yearly costs, gues this is a win win situation ?
2) How comes my purchased version of true image can NOT ever image a SSD to NVM drive ??? poor show?
3) Most people do not want to image there hard drive to Acronis Cloud, in the old days we kept safe images locally on our own storage !! Why does Acronis think its ok to keep force charging there storage each year. I don't want it ??
4) I don't want to rent your cloud storage each year!! this is so wrong to force this type of product, you should let people have the choice !
5) I don't want all the boat ware rubbish that's installed with true image either, just require a simple program that does not bog down the workstation with crap services and bloatware, to image and clone drives, what has happened to Acronis OMG ??
6) simply want a bloat free professional imaging tool that works, unlike the last version I purchased TRUE IMAGE 2020
7) sadly it would seem Acronis is destroying its original customer base with yearly costs of what they think people want !!! wrong people do NOT want to pay each year, we want to buy software once as it was the case years ago
8) So im guessing It's time to part company with Acronis and find a professional software package that's not TOY TOWN (cloud backup rubbish) and for the serious engineer who want to image drives and clone drives locally.
9) it's a crying shame to see Acronis go down this ameritrash route with there software, use to be a very professional product that I trusted 10 years ago
Such a shame from a long time loyal customer of many many years
